- No new calves today - I was surprised
- Discovered a possible tagging mistake - found calf 245 by itself. Cow 309 was hanging around. This afternoon, calf was still in the same place. Searched for cow 245, and found her with calf 309. Went back - tried to get calf 245 up and cow 309 to notice him - no luck (calf seemed week). Just went back a few minutes ago, and calf 245 was up and nursing on 309! I'll sleep better tonight. Not sure how we messed up the tags.
